New Words

I need a new word to explain the pain I feel.

A word just for this

Just for me.

This emotion too unique to share

Needs to find ground in hefty new form

In better letters.

In consonants that won’t devour its whole

In vowels that won’t diminish its goal.

I need a new word. A new world.

Just for me. Just for this.

One that oozes venom

While being laden down with guilt

A word that cries cliches

While standing firm.

A guttural cry. A silent whimper.

A genuine laugh. A weary simper.

Just let me have it, grab it

All to myself.

I will utter it once

Then place it on shelf.
